Another Challenge card...

I was in the mood to take part in another Sketch Challenge tonight so I chose to follow this lovely sketch over at Carol's sketch fun

I used some more of my Jolly Nation Christmas decoupage.

This image actually reminds me of my Son when he was little and used to have a massive stocking. Christmas was much more fun when the kids were little and they had much more exciting presents, it is all just books, cds and games for their games consoles now...

Anyway, I actually had a bit of a nightmare with this card, I discovered something new tonight...mirri board melts it you go anywhere near it with a heat gun! I wanted to stamp and emboss the greeting but I already had the image in place and all the mirri board melted on one side!

I took the card apart and trimed the mirri board back to get rid of the melted bit...and made a new greeting panel that I stuck over the mistake. Hopefully you can't tell now!

Off to bed now to read the latest issue of Simply Cards and Papercraft.
